Thanks for that. I was not sure what motor to get as this is my first 1/10th All my other cars are 1/8th so I know whats good for those. I figured go the 6.5T and turn the epa down. I guess if its that bad there will be a new motor being ordered. What temps should I be looking at for a efficient motor.

Prolly 130F. You can run much hotter but need to question what you are doing. Turning down the EPA is always an option but if you are down to 60% or something I would really consider a different motor. I personally think an 8.5t is about perfect for this car.

Great. Looks like I need to order a 8.5T.

You also need to consider the track size and traction. If you are running on a fairly large track with say a 80' or longer straight then you might be able to get by with a 6.5. Likewise, say if the track is a high traction indoor carpet track, you could also use a 6.5. On the other hand if you are running on an outdoor track with a lot of turns, a short straight, dirt, or low traction, and you never really have a chance to pull full throttle, then maybe a 6.5 would be too much.

I run a 7.5 with a 21 pinion on an outdoor track with medium traction. Works great for me. My motor temps vary from 130f to 150f depending on the weather and how much coffee I drank that day.

It's the Proline Bulldog body for either the Kyosho 4wd or the B44.1.

I just recieved my new DEX410v3 today. Opened it up, and noticed that there are no tires. Just rims. NO Tires? Is it supposed to come with tires?

My 410r didn't come with tires either nor did my TLR 22. They are not included. Figure people that purchase these cars are racers and would want to purchase their own tires for the track they run on.

OK, thanks for the quick reply. So next question, and knowingly track surface's are never the same, what would be a good tire selection for indoor, medium grip dirt? I have the losi bk bars on my B4, 2 wheel drive, but never bought tires for a 1/10th scale 4 wheel buggy
